Due to integration processes in Europe, Poland’s accession to the European Union and the Schengen zone, statistic of transborder areas acquires particular importance. It corresponds to the increasing demand for information on areas located on both sides of the border and, at the same time, also serves to promote regional development and transborder cooperation.
An essential element of the research works in transborder areas is to create a coherent information infrastructure for these areas. However, there are many problems, including those originating from the methodological differences, the limited availability of data for
areas located on both sides of the border, a low degree of comparability of data which relate to economic issues in particular, and lack of information on a given level of aggregation in different countries.
